Mauritius

Discover a palm-fringed Indian Ocean paradise on a luxury holiday in Mauritius.

Located off the southeast coast of Africa, Mauritius is a tropical island hideaway best known for its endless white sand beaches, palm-fringed turquoise lagoons and epic dive sites with vibrant marine species.

But it offers so much more: the mountainous interior is a paradise for hikers; offshore islets make ideal day trips by local boat; there are botanical gardens where giant tortoises roam and exotic flora blooms and elegant Creole plantation houses to explore.

Food is another major attraction in Mauritius, boasting one of the world’s great Creole cuisines combining native African, French, Chinese and Indian, as well some uniquely Mauritian dishes. Whether you choose a fine diner, laid back beach shack or street food stall, there are Indian curries, breads and pickles to savour alongside slow-braised European daubes and Asian stir-fried noodles, all using the freshest local ingredients.

An idyllic honeymoon destination or post-safari beach stay, Mauritius is also the perfect place for a stand-alone multi-generational family holiday or a simple getaway. And thanks to Abercrombie & Kent’s decades of experience crafting tailor-made holidays and a well-established network of in-country partners, you’ll be guided to the best luxury hotels and resorts, in the best locations, with an abundance of activities to choose from and world class service whichever way you turn.

When to Go

Positioned just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, Mauritius enjoys year-round tropical weather. We recommend planning your visit between May and December, when the weather is cool, dry and sunny. During the winter months (May to October), temperatures drop from hot to balmy and in summer (November to April) days are hot and humid.
